Letters: We Thank All First Responders: Agri-News

First Responder Brook Iroquois Volunteer Fire Department: While trimming bushes I accidentally cut the gas line into my home - immediately called the gas company - who called the fire department - who arrived within minutes. The firefighters were my neighbors ... 2 minutes away ... nothing drastic happened and life went on - it’s good to know that we have an amazing firefighting team on demand 24-7. Thanks to the entire team. Beth Bassett
